Our Sweet Spot
Part of your Team
We want to really understand the role and team, and collaborate with hiring managers. From uncovering and describing why talent would want the role to guiding the team through the interview process.
We work best with small companies under 100 people, and can take all, or just your most pressing open roles.
You actually give a darn. From giving feedback to applicants to having an efficient interview process. Then, engaging employees after they start. You believe in that stuff. It's the right thing to do, helps build good teams, and makes our job easier.
What Clients are Saying
"Hito has been a fantastic business partner for Animoto, accelerating our time to hire as well as streamlining our interview process. We've been able to hire top engineering and marketing talent with their help. They bring not only deep recruiting instincts but also a broader view of culture and retention to our Company's people services group." - VP of Finance
"Hito is a great recruiting partner. They truly own the whole process. They can source and assess, but I also trust them to work with hiring managers to understand requirements, collaborate, and to help throughout the interview process. They don't just assess skills fit, but think about culture and team fit, and care about the candidates experience. They are a valuable addition to the team." - VP of Engineering

We’re a small and mighty remote recruiting company. We’re different than most because we care a lot about the candidate experience, improving the hiring process and partnering with companies that share our values. We’re looking for someone who understands the entire recruiting process and wants to lead a key part of our business.
We have a highly collaborative way of working and give candid feedback frequently. We believe in autonomy and you’ll have full ownership to steer the ship. With that, you’ll also work closely with Hito Leadership to problem solve, strategize and calibrate on progress (pipeline, sourcing, etc). This open way of working isn’t for everyone but we’ve found it’s been a huge part of why we’ve been successful. Drop a line. We want to hear from you!

ABOUT HITO LABS
We come from the in-house world of HR and leading teams. We were frustrated by the broken contingency model of recruiting. What happened to truly understanding the team needs and representing the brand to candidates? We do things differently at Hito Labs, truly partnering with hiring managers and becoming a trusted expert on their team. We focus on helping to identify their needs, finding and vetting talent, creating a candidate experience, and getting the right people hired. Our whole team is remote. We value fulfilling work that provides the flexibility to spend time with family, kids and allow us to work from anywhere. We think the future is remote work and we love being part of this movement.
